David Tendlar--

*Birth/Death*:

Born August 8, 1909 in Dayton, Ohio, USA/died Sept. 9, 1993 (at age 84) in Los Angeles, California, USA (IMDb).

*Occupation/Title*: animator/animation department, director, writer

*Bio Summary*:
David Benjamin Tendlar’s most recognized work in animation ran through the 30s to the 70s. He directed and animated at Fleischer, Famous, Terrytoons and Hanna-Barbera. Tendlar also worked in the comics industry, i.e. his work with Jingle Jangle Comics in the mid-40s drawing Johnny Jay and Chauncey Chirp and Harvey’s Paramount Animated Comics in the 50s featuring Famous’ animated characters Buzzy the Crow, Herman & Katnip and Huey (“Comic Creator…”, Jacques).

*Early Life/Family*:

-Tendlar wanted to be a fireman when he was little (Fleischer Animated News/Jacques).

-As a child he was into cartooning and copying various pictures, "and chose the wall paper for ‘bigger and broader fields’" (Fleischer Animated News/Jacques).

-Tendlar and his family moved to New York in 1926 (Fleischer Animated News/Jacques).

-He married Beatrice R. Lang on March 11, 1933 (Fleischer Animated News/Jacques).

*Education/Training*:
-In Dayton, Tendlar attended public school and Stivers High School (Fleischer Animated News/Jacques).

-He made the artwork for his high school paper (Fleischer Animated News/Jacques).

*Career Outline*:
-Tendlar joined Fleischers’ studio in 1931 as an animator. Previously he worked for "Out of the Inkwell," as an errand boy and shipping clerk (Fleischer Animated News/Jacques).

-Animator Tom Sito said Tendlar was a top animator at Fleischer, creating work for Betty Boop, Popeye, Superman and Gulliver’s Travels.

-Sito said he met Tendlar in 1978 at Hanna & Barbera, where he worked on his last shows.

*Comments On Style*:
-Tendlar was the only Popeye animator with the tendency to draw said Popeye with his tongue stuck out for expression, other than others who drew it as such to express hunger (Jacques).

-With Tendlar’s de facto director assignment on "Betty Boop’s May Party" in 1933, Paramount’s connection to violent animal comedy started; a trend he helped perfect during the Golden Age of animation (Komorowski).

-Tendlar’s ‘flutters’ crop up in "Play Safe"—see one scene where the dog’s fore- and back paws are just these arcing lines ‘fluttering’ back and forth ("Better Play Safe!").

-Tendlar avoided drawing Popeye’s kneecaps, streamlining the shape of his legs instead of duplicating the model in segmented parts. Tendlar also drew ‘bulb-shaped’—for example, ‘bulb-shaped’ fingers (Jacques).

*Influences*:
-According to Sito: Tendlar's animation style was central to the look of Max Fleischer cartoons. Tendlar's approach wasn't flashy, but workman-like, getting the job done. His generation didn't really have a lot of earlier animation that inspired them. But Tendlar did admire "the great illustration style scene in magazines" such as "Colliers" and "Saturday Evening Post" by artists such as Charles Dana Gibson, James Montgomery Flagg and animator-cartoonist Winsor McCay.

-According to author Leslie Cabarga, he loved cartoonist Milton Caniff.

-As a Fleischer veteran, Tendlar worked in the same manner that Max and Dave had established years before. Tendlar was a head animator. Head animators did all the timing, layouts on cartoons and handed out work to their staff of three animators. Head animators were also responsible for designing incidental characters appearing in each cartoon; most other studios had people who did nothing but that (Maltin 314).

*Personality*:
-According to Sito: Tendlar "was a gentle, soft spoken man." Even though he was partially paralyzed by a stroke later in life, his smile was still bright.

*Anecdotes*:
-A lot of practical joke playing went on at Fleischer as in all animation studios, due to tedium and monotony of work. "Every animator seems to remember one favorite gag from the days at the Fleischer studios. Dave Tendlar recalled, 'Someone brought in a fake spider and we would hang it over my desk and call someone over and then let the spider down in front of their face and we were very amused by the different reactions. Finally we had done it to everyone in the studio, even Dave Fleischer, and then someone said, 'Well, gee, the only one we haven't done it to is Max. How about doing it to him?' So we debated for a while as to whether or not we would do it and finally decided we would. Someone went in and said to Max, 'Dave wants to see you. Has something to show you on his drawing board.' So in comes Max and he bends over to look at the drawing I was doing and they let the spider down and he didn't react at all. His non-reaction was the biggest letdown we ever had. He just looked up expressionless and we didn't know what he was thinking of and he mumbled something and walked out of the room'" (Cabarga 99).

-Jerry Beck found a drawing of an alligator stamped, "Return to Dave Tendlar." There was no information on what production or studio hailed from, or even if Tendlar actually drew it, or did he just want it returned? If so, why? Beck found this piece of art after Tendlar’s death in 1993, posting about the find on CartoonBrew in 2004. Dave Mackey, a Brew reader with his own website cataloguing Fleischer cartoons, gave Beck the answer that convinced him the most: that the art was probably from Tendlar’s first Popeye cartoon at Famous Studios, "Alona on the Sarong Seas," where Popeye meets the character pictured in the mystery art. Another Brew reader, Kevin Koch, claims that purchased an artwork also stamped, "Return to Dave Tendlar"—but it is a drawing of Donald Duck. Could Tendlar have worked at Disney before, or simply acquired a drawing of Donald for some reason (Beck)?

-Beck also acquired a 16 page promotional comic book produced by Tendlar for Kinney Shoe Stores. He said that on page 16, there is a note that it was "prepared by Tendlar Publishing" (yet when observed closely, it reads "Tendler"—was his last name normally misspelled like that?). That note suggests that Tendlar might have produced other promotional comics. Tendlar drew pages 2, 13-14, and possibly pages 8-9, the center spread (Beck).

-Tendlar was the de facto director and main animator on "The Tears of an Onion," a Fleischer Color Classic released February 26, 1938. As of 2006, this cartoon is the only Color Classic still under copyright protection, and thus was excluded from the "Somewhere in Dreamland" DVD collection, making it a relatively rare unknown to the fanbase. "The Tears of an Onion" also shares a very similar plot with a Harman-Ising cartoon "Poor Little Me" released three years before. This cartoon also seems to serve like a blueprint for Casper the Friendly Ghost cartoons in the 40s and 50s—a show co-created by a credited animator on "The Tears of an Onion," Joe Oriolo (""The Tears of an Onion"").

Tendlar was actually responsible for some of the best entries in the Color Classic series, i.e. "Play Safe." Fleisher expert and animation historian Mark Langer claims that "The Tears of an Onion" convinced Paramount executives that Fleischer Studios could also create a feature film that would be comparable to Disney’s "Snow White" (""The Tears of an Onion"").

-"Dave Tendlar said, 'The strikers comprised only a small part of the studio employees (if not small in number, small in the functions they performed). There were a lot of people there who did not want to be organized. They were puzzled as to who these organizes were and so for a while two factions developed; those that went with the studio and those that did not. This ended the happy camaraderie around the studio and marked the first time that there were any ill feelings between studio members'" (Cabarga 103).

-Tendlar married Lang the week after Roosevelt’s inauguration, when every bank in the nation was closed, so they wed on credit (Fleischer Animated News/Jacques).

-Tendlar and Lang had met on a blind date (Fleischer Animated News/Jacques).

*Miscellaneous*:
-Animator Tom Sito and Tendlar were friends. They met in 1978 at Hanna & Barbera (end of Tendlar's career).

-Sito said that Tendlar told him that many times animators like him supervised animation and design of many cartoon shorts. Tendlar was one of the key animators to get the films completed.

-Tendlar read Esquire and the Animated News itself (Flesicher Animated News/Jacques).

-Tendlar wore glasses for years (Flesicher Animated News/Jacques).

-"'Everybody that worked for Dave Fleischer in the old days always jokes about the way the character was kept bobbing up and down,' recalled head animator Dave Tendlar" (Cabarga 65).

-Fleischer studio's "Animated News Magazine" initiated December 1934 at suggestion of inbetweener Ben Solomon. The Animated News was mimeographed on white paper with the cover on a slightly heavier colored stock. It was published every month and featured studio news items, Lotta Bareback's advice to the lovelorn, synopses of cartoons in production, biographies of selected studio members, Betty Boop's fashion show and the hottest feature in the news—a gossip column called "Down the Studio Lane" (Cabarga 99). It included a biography on Tendlar (Flesicher Animated News/Jacques).
